There's only 3 people including me at my gym who are into tech out of around a total of 30 employees, The mate I just bought the 8700K from is VERY well off so I end up buying his old toys off of him only weeks after he buys them

Yeah you'd be surprised as to how many fitness enthusiasts are also PC enthusiasts.

I needed a connector to hook up my D5 pump to my power supply so I can run a leak test and 48-hour purge with SysPrep on the loop. Since I have never watercooled, and don't really build at home very often these days... I came up empty. On a whim I stopped in a little PC shop to see what I could score. For $100 i walked out with an i5 CPU, 8GB RAM, Intel Mainboard, and CPU cooler. Oh, and a handful of standoffs and screws. A decent deal to be sure, but to put it in perspective, that DDR3 RAM goes for $70 for a 4GB kit...! Now I have to come up with something to build this into once my current build is done, lol.
